Chiles Rellenos de San Joaquin

Rating: 4.31 stars
This is my adaptation of a chiles rellenos potluck recipe a friend described to me--so far everyone loves it. It can take some time to make, but it's worth it! Cotija cheese is a salty, hard cheese available in the Hispanic section of many grocery stores. It is similar to feta which could be used as a substitute in this recipe. But cotija is getting easier to find and makes this recipe more authentic!

Chile Relleno Pancakes

This tasted and felt just like a chile relleno, which isn't surprising, as we used the same ingredients. Not only did it taste the same, but I think it's easier to eat, since we don't have to worry about eating around the seedpod and stem. If you love chile rellenos as much as I do, you'll love these pancakes.

The filling for tostones rellenos can vary greatly: ceviche, octopus salad, pico de gallo, salsa, garlic shrimp, etc. These are stuffed with picadillo (seasoned ground beef) and cheese, but use your imagination. The possibilities are endless!
